A surprising amount of human behavior can be reliably predicted from unconscious communication mechanisms. These unconscious social signals are not just a back channel or a complement to our conscious language; they form a separate communication network. Biologically based “honest signaling” is an ancient channel of communication, and if we understand it, we can accurately predict the outcomes of situations ranging from job interviews to first dates to sealing a deal. To this end we have developed a digital sensor, worn like an id badge-a “sociometer”-to monitor and analyze the back and forth patterns of signaling among groups of people. Using this “network intelligence” theory of social signaling we can harness the intelligence of our social network to become better managers, workers and communicators.
